This post carries on from my previous one showing my WIP for the Shadow Blade build. http://polycount.com/discussion/198493/comp-entry-shadow-blade#latest
This build will be created using the following image for reference and I have modified the model to accommodate electronics for lighting effects. Almost all the parts will be printed in 2 halves so I can assemble the model around the electronics.
I've already printed the blade but I will likely be going for a hollow blade to ensure that the light penetrates the blade better.
